Exploring Venice – Day 1

Together with our Cicero – Edoardo Lazzari, we embarked on a two days exploration of known and less known business and initiatives in Venice. 

On our first day, we walked through the sestrieri (neighbourhoods) of Dorsoduro, San Polo and Canaregio to enter into the granularity of the city. We spoke with those working at: Bruno, the graphic design studio and bookshop ran by young and talented professionals; Small Caps where anectdotes and stories of life in Venice are transformed into mesmerising screen prints; Declare, curated leather products shop which collaborates with local visual artists; Le Malefatte/Rio Terà dei Pensieri, a social cooperative which has been working with inmates in Venice since 1994 producing bags and beauty products; and finally, Bottega Saòr, where Studio Saòr catalogues Venices’s architectural elements, from churches, to islands, from bridges to campi, creating souvenirs and publications.
